The “pope” has finally issued a letter to apologize to victims of clerical abuse. Here is part of what he said:
You have suffered grievously and I am truly sorry. I know that nothing can undo the wrong you have endured. Your trust has been betrayed and your dignity has been violated. Many of you found that, when you were courageous enough to speak of what happened to you, no one would listen. Those of you who were abused in residential institutions must have felt that there was no escape from your sufferings. It is understandable that you find it hard to forgive or be reconciled with the Church. In her name, I openly express the shame and remorse that we all feel. At the same time, I ask you not to lose hope. It is in the communion of the Church that we encounter the person of Jesus Christ, who was himself a victim of injustice and sin. Like you, he still bears the wounds of his own unjust suffering. He understands the depths of your pain and its enduring effect upon your lives and your relationships, including your relationship with the Church. I know some of you find it difficult even to enter the doors of a church after all that has occurred. Yet Christ’s own wounds, transformed by his redemptive sufferings, are the very means by which the power of evil is broken and we are reborn to life and hope. I believe deeply in the healing power of his self-sacrificing love – even in the darkest and most hopeless situations – to bring liberation and the promise of a new beginning.
Speaking to you as a pastor concerned for the good of all God’s children, I humbly ask you to consider what I have said. I pray that, by drawing nearer to Christ and by participating in the life of his Church – a Church purified by penance and renewed in pastoral charity – you will come to rediscover Christ’s infinite love for each one of you. I am confident that in this way you will be able to find reconciliation, deep inner healing and peace. ("Papal" Pastoral Letter,)
All the sense of “shame” and “sorrow” does nothing to undo the simple fact that the problem of clerical abuse in the Catholic Church in the decades before the “Second” Vatican Council was part of the adversary’s scheme to use closeted homosexuals in the Catholic hierarchy to recruit, retain and promote their own kind, noting as well that other bishops were indifferent to the horror of homosexual behavior and wanted to avoid personal embarrassment and financial liability for the diocese. It is also true that all the sense of “shame” and “sorrow” does nothing to undo the simple fact that clerical abuse in the counterfeit church of conciliarism after the “Second” Vatican Council has been the result of the systematic recruitment, retention and promotion of homosexuals by true bishops, including Giovanni Battista Enrico Antonio Maria Montini/Paul VI, and false bishops who were sodomites in their own rite, who wanted to accustom the Catholic faithful to accept sodomy and its perverse mutations as natural and legitimate bases for human self-identification and as authentic expressions of “love” that must be respected in the name of “diversity” and “toleration.”
Well, let me return to the “pope’s” apology:
I am conscious of the effort and work being carried out in various parts of the world to come up with the necessary means to ensure the safety and protection of the integrity of children and of vulnerable adults, as well as implementing zero tolerance and ways of making all those who perpetrate or cover up these crimes accountable. We have delayed in applying these actions and sanctions that are so necessary, yet I am confident that they will help to guarantee a greater culture of care in the present and future.
Together with those efforts, every one of the baptized should feel involved in the ecclesial and social change that we so greatly need. This change calls for a personal and communal conversion that makes us see things as the Lord does. For as Saint John Paul II liked to say: “If we have truly started out anew from the contemplation of Christ, we must learn to see him especially in the faces of those with whom he wished to be identified” (Novo Millennio Ineunte, 49). To see things as the Lord does, to be where the Lord wants us to be, to experience a conversion of heart in his presence. To do so, prayer and penance will help. I invite the entire holy faithful People of God to a penitential exercise of prayer and fasting, following the Lord’s command. This can awaken our conscience and arouse our solidarity and commitment to a culture of care that says “never again” to every form of abuse. ("Papal" Pastoral Letter.)
These empty words from an empty man do nothing to acknowledge that homosexual predators have been recruited to be installed in the conciliar presybeterate and then elevated to the conciliar hierarchy even after allegations of abuse against them and their colleagues have been proved. Massive cover-ups continue to take place despite all the assurances that there would be reforms undertaken and safeguards instituted to provide what the conciliar officials term as “safe environments.” This all begs the obvious as the counterfeit church of conciliarism is in se a manifestly unsafe environment to glorify God, to receive the true sacraments, to hear Catholic truth preached and to save one’s immortal soul.
I am sorry.
Did I really do this?
Well, yes, I did, and I cannot say that it was not intentional.
The first passage quoted above came not from the letter written by “Pope Francis” (aka The Argentine Apostate) to the “People of God” but from a similar letter that had been written on March 19, 2010, the Feast of Saint Joseph, by “Pope Benedict XVI” (The Bavarian Hegelian) to the Catholics of Ireland after the release of the Murphy Commission report that documented the decades of clerical abuse in the Land of Saint and Scholars. My own reaction to Joseph Alois Ratzinger/Benedict XVI’s pathetic letter was published on March 20, 2010, during the days when I was a much more prolific writer (Always Evading Root Causes).
Indeed, what I wrote about Ratzinger/Benedict’s letter to Irish Catholics attached to the conciliar structures is relevant now by way of commenting on Jorge Mario Bergoglio’s letter to “the People of God” that was issued yesterday, Monday, August 20, 2018, the Feast of Saint Bernard of Clairvaux, as he expressed “sorrow” and “shame” for the scandals in every single diocese of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania that were documented in a grand jury report issued last week by the Commonwealth’s attorney general, Josh Shapiro:
Although there are "conservative" "bishops" in the conciliar structures who have indeed attempted to maintain some sense of the horror of personal sin even though they endorse explicit classroom instruction in matters pertaining to the Sixth and Ninth Commandments in full violation of Pope Pius XI's prohibition of said instruction, it is not at all uncommon for conciliar 'bishops" to lack any sense of the horror of sin, including sins against nature, and this is precisely the result of four decades of the conciliar ethos at work in its false liturgical rites and its false spirit that has convinced so many in the clergy and laity alike that "everyone goes to Heaven." Ratzinger/Benedict not only fails to understand this, he prescribes the conciliar documents and liturgical rites as part of the "solution" to a problem that has a good of deal of its proximate roots in the conciliar ethos itself.
Ratzinger/Benedict went to great lengths in his letter to castigate those "bishops" who protected priests/presbyters who abused children as they sought to protect their own reputations. This is, of course, accurate as far as it goes.
Ratzinger/Benedict does not explain, however, that these "bishops" have been reaffirmed time and time again by officials in the conciliar Vatican, including himself, both as the prefect of the conciliar Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith and as the currently presiding conciliar "pontiff." Who gave the Irish "bishops" their "apostolic mandates"?
Giovanni Montini/Paul VI, who stocked the conciliar "episcopate" with men who were as favorably inclined to the lavender agenda as he was.
Karol Wojtyla/John Paul II, who protected known abusers time and time again, including the sociopath named Father Father Marcel Maciel Dellogado, the founder of the Legionaries of Christ, even though a few conciliar "bishops" who were themselves protecting abusive priests/presbyters reported complaints about Maciel directly to Wojtyla/John Paul II.
Joseph Ratzinger/Benedict XVI. (I am not aware of any "episcopal" appointments to Ireland made by Albino Luciani/John Paul I, although there may have been some.) And how did Ratzinger/Benedict himself deal with that priest who was afflicted with perverse inclinations who had abused children in the Diocese of Essen before being transferred to his own Archdiocese of Munich and Freising? Ratzinger/Benedict is in no position to condemn others for what he has done himself.
Moreover, officials in the conciliar Vatican stonewalled members of the conciliar clergy and laity who brought their concerns to them directly in their offices in and around the Vatican itself, something that Ratzinger/Benedict nowhere mentioned in his pastoral letter to the Catholics of Ireland, placing the blame on the Irish "bishops" for their refusal to deal adequately with "child-abusers" as he refuses to accept responsibility for failing to act on the entreaties that were made to him personally by members of the clergy and the laity from throughout the world.
Other members of the conciliar curia, including Dario Castrillon "Cardinal" Hoyos, had portfolios presented to them by prominent priests concerning the corruption of various "bishops." The late Father John A. Hardon, S.J., personally brought a presbyter-victim of the corrupt, disgraced "Bishop" Daniel Leo Ryan of Springfield, Illinois, to meet with "Cardinal" Hoyos in 1997 at a time that the latter was the "pro-prefect" of the conciliar Congregation for the Clergy. The result? Nothing. No action was undertaken against Ryan at all, who had been protected by many of his brother "bishops" in the United States of America until some of his other victims were on the verge of filing a lawsuit against him. It was only then that officials in the conciliar Vatican forced Ryan's resignation on October 14, 1999.
Another case involved in the 1990s involved a conciliar pastor who had a dossier on his diocesan "ordinary." The "ordinary" was engaged in natural vice, the pastor alleged. He had copious documentation that he brought with him, leaving copies of that documentation in every dicastery imaginable. The result? The "ordinary" is still in power.
The failure to act is not that of the conciliar "bishops" of Ireland alone.
As I have pointed out time and time again, officials in the conciliar Vatican have overseen the appointment of the "bishops" who have protected the sodomites and who have sought to browbeat the faithful. Only those who have been proved beyond any shadow of a doubt to have been personally morally corrupt and abusive have been removed. The rest, including the likes of Roger "Cardinal" Mahony, whose archdiocese has had to pay out close to $1 billion in settlement monies to victims of perverted priests and presbyters, are being allowed to remain in power until they reach retirement age. No censure. No public penalties.
In other words, Joseph Ratzinger/Benedict XVI's failure, at least thus far, to impose penalties upon the "bishops" in Ireland, apart from the resignations that have been tendered thus far, is simply par for the conciliar course. His failure to acknowledge the web of sodomite "bishops" and priests/presbyters extant in the counterfeit church of conciliarism means that he is either unwilling or unable to face reality as it is, addressing the symptoms of the root problems as he prescribes remedies such as a commitment to the conciliar documents that will only cause the problems themselves to grow in magnitude over the years. Ratzinger/Benedict has been part of the problem himself all along.
Joseph Ratzinger/Benedict XVI's call for Eucharistic adoration as a means to make reparation "for the sins of abuse that have done so much harm" is indeed laudable. It is a tragedy that the conciliar "rites" he praises do not make it possible for Our Lord to be truly present sacramentally in the Protestant and Masonic Novus Ordo service. Moreover, it is also tragic that the false "pontiff," although asking the "Blessed Virgin Mary [to] protect and guide each of you to a closer union with her Son, crucified and risen," once again refuses to exhort Catholics to pray Our Lady's Most Holy Rosary. This is a very notable feature of his false "pontificate." Ratzinger/Benedict almost never makes any exhortation to Catholics to pray Our Lady's Most Holy Rosary, a tragic commentary on state of his heart and soul that cannot accept the Rosary as the chief weapon after Holy Mass and Eucharistic adoration to fight the evils in the world today.
Alas, when all is said and done, my very few readers, Joseph Ratzinger/Benedict XVI's decision to focus on the abusive behavior of priests and presbyters (and the arrogant actions of the conciliar 'bishops" who have been indemnified by Rome time and time again, most of whom will remain in power for years to come a la Roger Mahony and Tod Brown and Robert Brom and Francis George and Howard Hubbard and Matthew Clark and William Skylstad and Richard Lennon and Thomas Daily and William Murphy and John McCormack, et al.; some might even be promoted to Rome itself after the honors accorded Bernard "Cardinal" Law, who is still the archpriest of the Basilica di Santa Maria Maggiore) rather than upon the homosexual-friendly culture that exists universally conciliar structures means that the false "pontiff" is either in denial or that he is attempting to fool Catholics by addressing symptoms with half-measures while refusing to focus at all on the underlying rot of conciliarism itself that is responsible for serving as an important enabling factor in scandalizing Catholics and non-Catholics alike worldwide by the promotion or the minimizing of perverse sins against nature.
This all applies doubly and triply to Jorge Mario Bergoglio, who, it should be remembered, is having the notorious “Father” James Martin, S.J., speak at the so-called “World Meeting of Families” that is taking place this week in Ireland, a country whose voters voted overwhelmingly to repeal the Eighth Amendment to the Constitution of the Republic of Ireland that, effectively, opened the way for the nation’s parliament, Oireachtas, to decriminalize the surgical execution of the innocent preborn. There is a specific program during this “meeting” to enable so-called LGBTQ “ministries” and to help families with children who are afflicted with the scourge of perverse proclivities and identify themselves thereby.
Moreover, “Pope Francis” uses what others have called “gayspeak” to refer to sodomy and its related perverse vices, starting with his infamous “Who am I to judge?” comment on Monday, July 29, 2013, and it was just a month thereafter that he telephoned a French sodomite to reassure him that his homosexuality “did not matter":
Then on Friday, Mr. Lombardi denied newspaper reports in France that the pope had called a young Catholic gay man in Toulouse to reassure him. The man, Christopher Trutino, a 25-year-old salesclerk, had told a local paper, La Dépêche du Midi, that after he wrote a letter to the pope explaining his struggles to reconcile his sexuality and faith, Francis phoned him to counsel him. “Your homosexuality, it doesn’t matter,” he recalled the pope saying. “One way or another, we are all children of God.”
Some on Twitter and elsewhere on the Internet greeted reports of the call as a welcome change in the doctrinal rigidity of the church on the issue of homosexuality. But the Vatican’s denial of the reports fanned speculation that the call had been a hoax, while also prompting some to question whether the Vatican was dissembling to distance itself from a delicate topic.
Mr. Trutino is avoiding the media, and could not be reached for comment on Monday. But Cyril Doumergue, the journalist from La Dépêche du Midi who interviewed him, said he had sounded authentic and genuinely moved. But he said he believed Mr. Trutino may have been deceived. He said the young man told the newspaper that during the call — which he said began at 2 p.m. — the pope explained that he would later be receiving King Abdullah II of Jordan. But Ansa, the Italian news agency, said the king arrived at 11 a.m. and the meeting was over by 12:06 p.m.
“Christopher did not record the conversation, so it is impossible to know 100 percent what happened,” Mr. Doumergue said. (Francis is on the line and everyone's talking.)
Contrary to what "Father" Federico Lombardi, S.J., tried to claim, it was within a few short days that Jorge himself admitted the phone call and its contents in his now infamous interview with "Father" Antonio Spadoro, S.J.:
“Another example from recent days that I saw got the attention of newspapers: the phone call I made to a young man who wrote me a letter. I called him because that letter was so beautiful, so simple. For me this was an act of generativity. I realized that he was a young man who is growing, that he saw in me a father, and that the letter tells something of his life to that father. The father cannot say, ‘I do not care.’ This type of fruitfulness is so good for me.” (A Big Heart Open to God, America Magazine.)
Bergoglio thus admitted to “Father” Antonio Spadoro, S.J., what “Father” Federico Lombardi, S.J., had denied when news of the infamous phone call had first become public two weeks beforehand.
It is really easy for a man who has mutilated all doctrinal truth to hack away at all moral truth as comfort is given to those who are in need of admonition, not a reaffirmation that is of the devil himself. Jorge Mario Bergoglio really believes that the only people who are in peril of losing their souls are those who hold fast to everything contained in the Sacred Deposit of Faith and are thus “rigidly” hard-hearted and unwilling to be open to “God’s surprises” and the alleged movement of the Third Person of the Most Blessed Trinity, God the Holy Ghost.
Indeed, Jorge Mario Bergoglio has given his own personal support to every freakish rebellion against the Order of Creation and the Order of Redemption. Nothing in the popular culture is too bizarre and or revolting for him to refrain from applauding and celebrating in order to give his personal seal of “papal” approval, thereby undermining and marginalizing any “bishop” or priest/presbyter in the conciliar structures who has attempted to perform the Spiritual Work of Mercy of admonishing sinners. A simpler way to put this is that Jorge rewards the wicked and punishes clergymen who seek their correction.
Bergoglio even met with met with a Spanish woman, who had undergone gender mutilation surgery, and her “fiancée,” on Saturday, January 24, 2015, the Feast of Saint Thomas, after the mutilated woman had written to him to explain that she had been described as the “devil’s daughter” by her local presbyter:
Vatican City, January 26 - Pope Francis on Saturday received in a private audience a Spanish transsexual and his girlfriend after the man wrote to him saying he had been cast out of the church in his native city, Spanish daily Hoy reported Monday.
The transgender male, Diego Neria Lejarraga, a 48-year-old former woman, wrote to the pope some time ago saying he had been "marginalised" by Church officials in the city of Plasencia, in the southwestern region of Estremadura, Hoy said.
Neria, a believer and a practising Catholic, said he had been rebuffed by elements of the local clergy and claimed the parish priest had called him "the Devil's daughter", Hoy reported.
Francis phoned him twice in December, setting up Saturday''s meeting in St Martha's House, the Vatican guesthouse the pontiff lives in, Hoy said.
The pope has said the Catholic Church should be more accepting of gays but recently failed to muster a big enough majority of cardinals to change doctrine on the issue.
Asked about the reported meeting, official Vatican sources declined to comment. (Jorge receives Spanish Transsexual”)
Some might protest that Bergoglio was only giving “comfort” to an aggrieved soul.
What’s the grievance?
The gender-mutilated woman is the devil’s daughter as to mutilate one’s body to change his gender is to play God with the very nature He has given to him and is a direct violation of the binding precepts that flow from the Fifth Commandment. Just as he really does not believe that there is anything inherently unnatural in “same-sex attraction,” so is it apparent that Jorge Mario Bergoglio does not believe that there is anything inherent wrong in undergoing gender-mutilation surgery. He is as perverted in his mind and in his soul as the woman who met with him in the company of the woman she intends to “marry” even though she is a “woman.” So much for Jorge’s supposed opposition to “same-sex marriage,” huh? What the mutilated woman, who believes herself to be a man, intends in reality to do is to “marry” another woman.
By giving a show of support and affirmation to the gender-mutilated woman, Jorge Mario Bergoglio was, in effect, communicating his belief that such a mutilation must be accepted as a fait accompli without any word of criticism or rebuke. Such a belief, though, is contrary even to the official teaching of his own Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, which issued a “doctrinal note” on January 31, 2003, declaring that one who undergoes a “sex-change” operation does not change the gender that God gave to him:
VATICAN, Jan 31, 03 (CWNews.com) -- The Catholic Church cannot recognize the validity of a sex-change operation, the Vatican has declared.
The Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith has released a secret directive to bishops and religious superiors, indicating that an individual who has undergone a sex-change operation cannot be a candidate for the priesthood or religious life, and cannot enter into a valid marriage. The document also instructs pastors that they should not alter an individual's sacramental record to change the person's gender.
The Vatican document was released in 2000, but its existence and contents were tightly guarded until earlier this month. The directives were reportedly sent at first to papal delegates in each country, and later to the heads of episcopal conferences. Vatican officials confirmed the existence of the document after the Catholic News Service reported on it, but the full text is not available to the public.
The Note from the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith explains that an individual's physical characteristics-- which can be altered surgically-- constitute only a part of his gender identity. While the body can be changed, the sexual identity cannot, the Congregation says.
The Vatican document indicates that if a bishop or religious superior learns that an individual has undergone a sex-change operation, "that person cannot validly be admitted into a religious institute or society of consecrated life." The document adds that if a transsexual is now living in a religious order, "he must, for the good of souls, be expelled from the religious house."
The Vatican document was reportedly given greater circulation after a query from an American bishop, prompted by a dispute within a religious order in his diocese. (SEX- CHANGE OPERATIONS RULED INVALID BY THE CONCILIAR VATICAN.)
Jorge Mario Bergoglio may or may have known about this “doctrinal note,” which would not matter to him even if he did know about it. Remember, he lives in a doctrine-free zone, and he fashions himself the “spirit’s” himself to effect changes in the name of “mercy” and “compassion. There are all types of spirits. Jorge’s happens to come from the netherworld.
“Pope Francis” has appointed more sodomites and sodomite-friendly men to the conciliar hierarchy than the sodomite whose body decayed so rapidly that it turned a greenish black in the heat of the Mediterranean sun forty years ago this month, Giovanni Battista Enrico Antonio Maria/Paul VI, most notably including Blase Cupich as the conciliar “archbishop” of Chicago, Illinois, Joseph Tobin as the conciliar “archbishop” of Newark, New Jersey, John Dolan as an auxiliary “bishop” for the Diocese of San Diego, California, and, among, so many others, John Stowe as the “bishop” of Lexington, Kentucky. He has unleashed the sodomite-friendly “bishops” of Germany and elsewhere in Europe, including one of his “commissioners,” Reinhard Marx, to support the sodomite agenda quite freely, and he has given free space to the lavender-supporting Christoph Schonborn of Vienna, Austria, to speak for him as the “boundaries” keep being pushed in the direction of ecclesiastically-sponsored “blessings” for those living in sodomite relationships.
Bergoglio has done everything imaginable to “minister” to those he believes to be on the “peripheries,” including a lesbian “couple” who had been given permission in April of 2014by “archbishop” Carlos Nanez of Cordoba, Argentina, to have a child baptized, and he made quite a point of meeting and being photographed at the Vatican Embassy in Washington, District of Columbia, on Wednesday, September 23, 2015, with a sodomite “couple” from Argentina.
Perhaps more to the point of the Pennsylvania grand jury report Donald “Cardinal” Wuerl, the disgraced and demoted Father Theodore McCarrick’s successor as the conciliar “archbishop” of Washington, District of Columbia, was name in the grand jury report for his reprehensible complicity in the covering-up of clerical abuse when he was the conciliar “bishop” of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Wuerl is so sodomite-friendly that he removed a conciliar “priest” for privately telling a lesbian that she could not receive what purports to be Holy Communion in the Protestant and Judeo-Masonic Novus Ordo liturgical service because she was living in sin:
Washington D.C., Jul 11, 2012 / 04:32 pm (CNA).- The Archdiocese of Washington, D.C. says it no longer employs a priest who became known for denying Holy Communion to a partnered lesbian woman.
“Fr. Marcel Guarnizo is a priest of the Archdiocese of Moscow, Russia, who was given a temporary assignment at St. John Neumann parish,” archdiocesan communications director Chieko Noguchi Scheve said in a statement provided to CNA on July 10.
“That assignment period has ended and Father Guarnizo is no longer in ministry in the Archdiocese of Washington,” Scheve wrote.
Fr. Guarnizo declined to comment on the announcement from the archdiocese.
In February 2012, the priest drew national attention for withholding the Eucharist from Barbara Johnson at her mother's funeral. Fr. Guarnizo made the decision after Johnson introduced him to her lesbian partner before Mass.
Johnson remained outraged after the incident, threatening to have Fr. Guarnizo “removed from parish life.” The Archdiocese of Washington, D.C. apologized for his “lack of pastoral sensitivity” and said it was against policy for a priest to “publicly reprimand” a person approaching the sacrament.
In March, Fr. Guarnizo was removed from ministry in the archdiocese. The announcement of did not refer to Johnson, but cited “intimidating behavior toward parish staff and others.” Fr. Guarnizo defended his action, and said his removal from ministry was related to the funeral incident.
In a paper published online, Johnson had at one point identified herself as “a lesbian and a Buddhist.” However, she later told MSNBC that she is “a Catholic” who is “deeply influenced by eastern religion philosophy.” Her relationship with the Church, she said, is “complex.” (Presbyter who denied communion to lesbian no longer with DC Archdiocese.)
Goodbye, Father Guarnizo.

Mind you, that's just for starters as there are a veritable potpourri of pro-aborts serving in the
Donald "Cardinal" Wuerl, ever so friendly to the lavender or rainbow brigade, sees to it that "Father" Marcel Guarnizo is sent packing while he ignores the plain words of Pope Pius XI below by treating pro-abortion, pro-perversity public officials with great respect and dignity:
Those who hold the reins of government should not forget that it is the duty of public authority by appropriate laws and sanctions to defend the lives of the innocent, and this all the more so since those whose lives are endangered and assailed cannot defend themselves. Among whom we must mention in the first place infants hidden in the mother's womb. And if the public magistrates not only do not defend them, but by their laws and ordinances betray them to death at the hands of doctors or of others, let them remember that God is the Judge and Avenger of innocent blood which cried from earth to Heaven. (Pope Pius XI, Casti Connubii, December 31, 1930.)
Donald Wuerl is of one apostate mind with Jorge Mario Bergoglio, who has apologized for the moral crimes committed against children without mentioning the fact that the clerical abusers were sodomites.
Moreover, neither Ratzinger/Benedict in his letter to Irish Catholics eight years ago nor Bergoglio in his letter to the “People of God” yesterday acknowledged that the behavior outlined in the Pennsylvania grand jury report was not limited to children but extended to the systematic grooming of seminarians and priests. Many of the clerical abusers named in the grand jury report groomed young men, laity and seminarians alike.
However, it is especially important to emphasize that the grooming of seminarians to become ensnared in lives of perversity is one of the chief means by which the sodomites within the conciliar hierarchy propagate themselves over the decades and exercise control over those presbyters who might feel remorse and desire to come clean about what happened to them. Any priest or presbyter who attempts to “set up” a seminarian or another priest in an effort to compromise him and thus to purchase his silence is a direct tool of the devil. This language that one will not find in Ratzinger/Benedict’s 2010 letter nor in Jorge’s sob-sister letter that was issued yesterday.
Sure, the problem of sodomite infestation in seminarians predated the “Second” Vatican Council, something that Mrs. Randy Engel amply documented in The Rite of Sodomy (my review of this massive book can be found at Understanding A Cesspool of Corruption) and that Father Gerald Fitzgerald warned American bishops about in the 1950s (see Lawless Men At Large By An Illegal Church, part one). The Montinian revolution brought the closeted queers out into the open and began what could be called the “queering” of what passed for Catholic art, architecture, music, doctrine and pastoral practice. It is not for nothing that an increasing number of parishes worldwide in the counterfeit church of conciliarism call themselves “inclusive” and/or “LGBTQ-friendly,” and this is but the fruit of Montini’s appointments between 1963 and 1968. Seminaries and religious communities of men became overrun with sodomites in the decades thereafter. The problem was so bad by the time I was studying at Mount Saint Mary’s Seminary in the Fall of 1981 after I had taken a leave of absence from teaching at Nassau Community College that Saint Mary’s Seminary in Baltimore, Maryland, was known as “The Pink Palace.”
No, neither Ratzinger/Benedict nor Bergoglio could admit that the problem of clerical abuse was the recruitment of homosexuals into the ranks of the conciliar clergy even though each did issue pro-forma messages that were said to be efforts to prevent such an infiltration. Actions speak louder than words, though, and Ratzinger, for his part, kept appointing and promoting sodomite-friendly “bishops” to important sees and Bergoglio, for his part, has, as noted above, styled himself as the “loving,” “inclusive,” “merciful” and “accompanying” agent of a supposedly “uncaged spirit.”
Although time does not permit me to write a detailed examination of “Bishop” Robert Morlino’s own pastoral letter, which will the subject of the next commentary on this site, suffice it to say for the moment that the conciliar “bishop” of Madison, Wisconsin, did identity the problem and without mincing any words or sparing any feelings:
For too long we have diminished the reality of sin — we have refused to call a sin a sin — and we have excused sin in the name of a mistaken notion of mercy. In our efforts to be open to the world we have become all too willing to abandon the Way, the Truth, and the Life. In order to avoid causing offense we offer to ourselves and to others niceties and human consolation.
Why do we do this? Is it out of an earnest desire to display a misguided sense of being “pastoral?” Have we covered over the truth out of fear? Are we afraid of being disliked by people in this world? Or are we afraid of being called hypocrites because we are not striving tirelessly for holiness in our own lives?
Perhaps these are the reasons, but perhaps it is more or less complex than this. In the end, the excuses do not matter. We must be done with sin. It must be rooted out and again considered unacceptable. Love sinners? Yes. Accept true repentance? Yes. But do not say sin is okay. And do not pretend that grave violations of office and of trust come without grave, lasting consequences.
For the Church, the crisis we face is not limited to the McCarrick affair, or the Pennsylvania Grand Jury Report, or anything else that may come. The deeper crisis that must be addressed is the license for sin to have a home in individuals at every level of the Church. There is a certain comfort level with sin that has come to pervade our teaching, our preaching, our decision making, and our very way of living.
If you’ll permit me, what the Church needs now is more hatred! As I have said previously, St. Thomas Aquinas said that hatred of wickedness actually belongs to the virtue of charity. As the Book of Proverbs says “My mouth shall meditate truth, and my lips shall hate wickedness (Prov. 8:7).” It is an act of love to hate sin and to call others to turn away from sin.
There must be no room left, no refuge for sin — either within our own lives, or within the lives of our communities. To be a refuge for sinners (which we should be), the Church must be a place where sinners can turn to be reconciled. In this I speak of all sin. But to be clear, in the specific situations at hand, we are talking about deviant sexual — almost exclusively homosexual — acts by clerics. We’re also talking about homosexual propositions and abuses against seminarians and young priests by powerful priests, bishops, and cardinals. We are talking about acts and actions which are not only in violation of the sacred promises made by some, in short, sacrilege, but also are in violation of the natural moral law for all. To call it anything else would be deceitful and would only ignore the problem further.
There has been a great deal of effort to keep separate acts which fall under the category of now-culturally-acceptable acts of homosexuality from the publically-deplorable acts of pedophilia. That is to say, until recently the problems of the Church have been painted purely as problems of pedophilia — this despite clear evidence to the contrary. It is time to be honest that the problems are both and they are more. To fall into the trap of parsing problems according to what society might find acceptable or unacceptable is ignoring the fact that the Church has never held ANY of it to be acceptable — neither the abuse of children, nor any use of one’s sexuality outside of the marital relationship, nor the sin of sodomy, nor the entering of clerics into intimate sexual relationships at all, nor the abuse and coercion by those with authority.
In this last regard, special mention should be made of the most notorious and highest in ranking case, that being the allegations of former-Cardinal Theodore McCarrick’s (oft-rumored, now very public) sexual sins, predation, and abuse of power. The well-documented details of this case are disgraceful and seriously scandalous, as is any covering up of such appalling actions by other Church leaders who knew about it based on solid evidence.
While recent credible accusations of child sexual abuse by Archbishop McCarrick have brought a whole slew of issues to light, long-ignored was the issue of abuse of his power for the sake of homosexual gratification.
It is time to admit that there is a homosexual subculture within the hierarchy of the Catholic Church that is wreaking great devastation in the vineyard of the Lord. The Church’s teaching is clear that the homosexual inclination is not in itself sinful, but it is intrinsically disordered in a way that renders any man stably afflicted by it unfit to be a priest. And the decision to act upon this disordered inclination is a sin so grave that it cries out to heaven for vengeance, especially when it involves preying upon the young or the vulnerable. Such wickedness should be hated with a perfect hatred. Christian charity itself demands that we should hate wickedness just as we love goodness. But while hating the sin, we must never hate the sinner, who is called to conversion, penance, and renewed communion with Christ and His Church, through His inexhaustible mercy. ("Bishop" Robert Morlino Letter.)
This is simply superb. It is eminently Catholic, so much so that one wonders if some kind of Vatican “visitation” will be made to determine whether “Bishop” Robert Morlino is fit to remain in “episcopal ministry.”
Unfortunately, for “Bishop” Morlino, however, the problem he identifies does not afflict the Catholic Church, admitting that it is, sadly, far from unknown and has been enabled if only by indifference within many traditional Catholic circles in the underground. The conciliar “bishop” of Madison, Wisconsin, does not realize that he is in a false church and that the “ordinary form” of its alleged Roman Rite is devoid of any references to a God who judges, of the possibility of eternal damnation, of the gravity of human sin.
This is because a homosexual such as Giovanni Battista Enrico Antonio Maria/Paul the Sick authorized the Novus Ordo revolution against the Catholic Faith, whose construction was planned by a number of renegades, including at least one, Father Rembert George Weakland, O.S.B., who admitted nine years ago—seven years after he had to resign in disgrace as the wreckovating-“archbishop” of Milwaukee, Wisconsin—that he was a supposedly celibate homosexual. Sodomy has everything to do with the new religion that needed a new liturgy, a new catechism, a new set of mysteries of Our Lady’s Most Holy Rosary, and now new “pastoral practices” that are designed to reaffirm hardened sinners in their lives of perversion. “Bishop” Morlino is to be commended for identifying homosexual behavior for what it is, but he does not realize that a false religion cannot stand the expression of truths enunciated with clarity and certainty.
The way out of this mess runs through Our Lady's true Fatima Message, which has been suppressed and deconstructed by the conciliarists and is under attack even by a few Jansenists who masquerade as "traditional" Catholics, we must continue to make penance for our owns sins as we seek to fulfill the terms of our total consecration to Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ through Our Lady's Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart, praying as many Rosaries each day as our state-in-life permit.
God has known from all eternity that we would be living in these troubling times. There is work for us do as we seek to sanctify our souls and make reparation for our sins. We have to pray to Our Lady, therefore, to keep close to the tender mercies of her Divine Son's Most Sacred Heart so that the sacrifices we make will be more acceptable in the eyes of her Divine Son and thus more efficacious in planting at least a few seeds for the triumph of her Immaculate Heart and the vanquishing of her Divine Son's foes in the world and in the counterfeit church that is the embodiment of this prophecy of Saint Paul:
And we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and of our gathering together unto him: That you be not easily moved from your sense, nor be terrified, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by epistle, as sent from us, as if the day of the Lord were at hand. Let no man deceive you by any means, for unless there come a revolt first, and the man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition, Who opposeth, and is lifted up above all that is called God, or that is worshipped, so that he sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself as if he were God. Remember you not, that when I was yet with you, I told you these things?
And now you know what withholdeth, that he may be revealed in his time. For the mystery of iniquity already worketh; only that he who now holdeth, do hold, until he be taken out of the way. And then that wicked one shall be revealed whom the Lord Jesus shall kill with the spirit of his mouth; and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming, him, Whose coming is according to the working of Satan, in all power, and signs, and lying wonders, And in all seduction of iniquity to them that perish; because they receive not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. Therefore God shall send them the operation of error, to believe lying:
That all may be judged who have not believed the truth, but have consented to iniquity. But we ought to give thanks to God always for you, brethren, beloved of God, for that God hath chosen you firstfruits unto salvation, in sanctification of the spirit, and faith of the truth: Whereunto also he hath called you by our gospel, unto the purchasing of the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore, brethren, stand fast; and hold the traditions which you have learned, whether by word, or by our epistle. Now our Lord Jesus Christ himself, and God and our Father, who hath loved us, and hath given us everlasting consolation, and good hope in grace, Exhort your hearts, and confirm you in every good work and word. (2 Thes. 2: 1-16.)
May Our Lady help us to persevere in this month of her Immaculate Heart so that we can continue to walk the rocky road that leads to the narrow gate of Life Himself, truly sorry for the many times that we have walked so casually on the wide and smooth road that leads to the gates of perdition. It is only by the graces won for us by Our Lord that are sent to us through Our Lady's loving hands that we can continue to walk the rocky road with persistence, recognizing that our vigilance in attending to the interior castle of our soul will help to build up the Church Militant on earth and prepare us to be of more worthy assistance to the Church Suffering in Purgatory and for a blessed reunion with all of the souls of the just in the Church Triumphant in an unending Easter Sunday of glory in Paradise.
As we do so, of course, we must, while praying for the leaders of the counterfeit church of conciliarism, recognize falsehood and obfuscation when we see it, clinging to the good shepherds who will treat us with the gentleness and the attentiveness of the Good Shepherd, Who never used His staff to drive away the sheep who sought Him out to entreat Him for a caring ear or for a word of support.
May the Rosaries we pray each day help to bring about the restoration of the Church Militant on earth and of Christendom in the world.
